Our Mission statement
Striving to support and enhance our children’s; education, wellbeing and aspirational goals, by bringing together parents, teachers and the wider community, through participation in fun activities, developing facilities and providing new equipment.
We believe by making every child’s potential a reality we need to empower and engage with families and communities alike to advocate for all children.
Fund raising for:
Chill Zone – we want to raise money to create a n area for the children to relax in, the aim is to buy a sail (cover) to go from the hall to the studio (I don’t know if there is a name for it). We will purchase durable outdoor furniture and plant some lovely flowers . The idea is to create an area that children can sit and relax, read a book, chat with friends and generally chill.
Sports Equipment – we are planning to buy equipment for the MUGA. Ideally we want to buy football posts, hockey goals, netball/basketball poles, general sports equipment (unihock sticks, netball, footballs).
On a Saturday to be decided, FoWP will run a gardening club for children and parents to come and do some landscaping around the school to make it attractive and inviting. This will be held 3 or 4 times a year to compliment the seasons.
